Transcript for Binge This: Emmy nominations
horn is going to come. You know, I just worry it's not, but it's always there every Saturday morning. Janai, good morning. Hey, it always comes through. All right, if you need weekend entertainment, you have come to the right place. Time for "Binge this." "People TV's" Jeremy parsons is here with his expert recommendations. Jeremy, so excited to have you back. Thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. Emmy nominations, they came out this week. With seven weeks to go until the big night, what should we binge to get ready? So many good shows, "The marvelous Mrs. Maisel" is where we will begin, season three for best comedy series, it got 20 Emmy nominations this year and topped all the comedies for a number of nominations. Same amount as it got last year and this year noms down the line for that leading cast, Rachel Brosnahan, Marion Hinkle and Tony Shalhoub won last year. We'll see if they do it again this year. Binge "The marvelous Mrs. Maisel." Let's move the list. "The mandalorian," best drama series. Look, this show, this series came out with so much fanfare, so much buzz from fans, 15 nominations, a lot more noms than even "The crown," "Westworld," "Stranger things," some of the more established series. Here's the question, will baby yoda make his first emmys appearance? We'll find out. Here you go, guys, if yoda doesn't make an appearance, a huge mistake, it will be. That was my sad attempt at a yoda joke. I apologize. It won't happen again. Let's move on down the list, "Black-ish," best actor, best actress nominations for Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson. They are among a record number of black actors nominated for the emmys this year. That will be a theme we see more and more of as we get closer to that show. It airs September 20th, the emmys, so you have some time to prepare there. All right. "The mandalorian," I know you have whit and Dan really excited. Okay, so what about TV specials, what do you recommend? And they're also angry about that yoda joke. All right, here we go. More TV. "Shark vs. Surfer." If you didn't know, national geographic has us covered to get our shark content fix. Shark fest is going on. "Shark vs. Surfer" premieres Sunday. We got these wild caught on camera shark encounters, interviews with survivors of shark attacks, experts explaining how surfers can actually be mistaken for animals. There's a lot in this that you can kind of dive into, Sunday, 8:00 P.M. Eastern on the national geographic channel. Check that out. Holy moly. Some of those images, all right. Yesterday was a big day for music. Yeah. Tell us what just dropped. Alanis Morissette has a brand-new album. Look, this is one of my favorite artists to scream sing on a road trip. The ninth studio album from her since 2012. It's called "Such pretty forks in the road." The songs on this album talk about junctures in her life, moving from Hollywood, having more children, themes like feminism and mental health. She even opens up about postpartum depression, getting very real here. The album includes the song "Smiling," which features Elizabeth Stanley from "Jagged little pill: The musical." There's a lot here. It's the Alanis Morissette we know and love from the '90s in a new way. The album is available now. And rascal flatts has a brand-new EP. Now, they had a farewell tour planned. They had to cancel it due to the pandemic. We're unsure what they'll do but in the meantime, they are marking their farewell year with this EP, how they remember you. It includes their cover of Kenny Rogers' "Through the years" and we love their big hits like their version of "Bless the broken road" played at a million different weddings, I'm sure. Fans are excited to sing along with the new music as well. The album just released this weekend. You can check out rascal flatts. Sounds good. You know, Alanis Morissette must be a fan of silverware. "Pretty forks in the road" makes me think like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife. When all you need is a knife. Thank you so much. You can catch Jeremy hosting "People now" streaming weekdays at 1:00 P.M. Eastern and pick up this week's issue of "People" on newsstands nationwide. Back to you guys in the studio. I'm just trying to picture janai scream singing to "You ought to know." Hey, I think there was a certain age group of women who all screamed to that song in the car with someone driving, right? It was fun. It's what we did. We just learned something about Eva. Hey, janai, great job. Thank you very much.
